So, you need to do some research on this aspect. Next, ensure that the roofer has insurance and ask to see a copy of it. You want a roofer that is transparent about their process. For those who are going through insurance, you want to make sure your roofer is “Xactimate trained”. Xactimate is a software that the insurance companies use to write up the damage for the roof.

Check the reviews religiously and see if they are accredited on the BBB (Better Business Bureau). Additionally, ask for referrals. You can also see if the roofer is accredited with a manufacturer. This is especially important if you want to use a certain manufacturer for your roof. These are just some of the things you should be looking for when considering hiring a roofing company.
